Looks lovely from the outside. Dreary underground walkways to platforms which could be much more pleasant. Hardly any seating. Decided to grab a coffee at the pumpkin cafe on platform 10. I kid you not the seating is the worst and certainly most unhygienic I've...More

The staion can get very busy. There are good decent food outlets including a cornish pasty outlet. There are a few places to get really nice baguettes / sandwiches too.
